Quiz Answers

There has been some concern about "answers."  I suppose that's reasonable.

The Very First New Monday Quiz of 2015!

A (the Tokugawa Shogunate, Don Quixote, the New Netherlands Company) - 1615
B (Agincourt, Jan Hus, Cueta) - 1415
C (Revolt of Vitalian, Theodoric the Great's daught, Buddhism in China) - 515
D (Britain Bans Death Penalty, Gateway Arch, Vatican II) - 1965
E (Magna Carta, the Dominican Order, Sack of Beijing) - 1215
F (Gallipoli, the Lusitania, Relativity) - 1915
G (The Persian Empire, Herotidus, Rome v. the Volsci) - 485BCE
H (Cnut the Great, Vlad the Great, Berserkers) - 1015
I (Waterloo, Brits in New Zealand, Elizabeth Cady Stanton) - 1815
J (Alice in Wonderland, Lincoln, Mendel) - 1865

Elizabeth, Mrs.5000, JudyR, mhwitt, and Eavan all aced it!  Honorable Mention: chuckdaddy "kept going back and forth on C and H," a tough pair, and landed with the wrong combo.  Susan reversed them, too.
